Product Description


A lesser man would have long since given up, got a job, or run wild in a shopping mall swathed in bandilleros with a beltful of pistols: Robert Forster embarked on the recording of Warm Nights as the co-author of six albums' worth of thundering genius with The Go-Betweens, the sole creator of two great solo albums and a further collection of engagingly peculiar cover versions, and yet had still produced less hit records than Switzerland has great naval commanders. On the evidence of Warm Nights, Forster appears to have decided that his revenge upon the world will be to carry on writing marvellous songs that nobody will ever hear. In front of a backing band including Edwyn Collins--who also produced, conjuring a keyboard-led surf-pop sound reminiscent of Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers--Forster deadpans his way through another collection of wryly observed vignettes riddled with his trademark odd but strangely evocative one-liners ("She reminds me of Africa, though I've never been", "Later that year, my hair turned the colour of corn").

Another unimpeachable album by Robert Forster. He keeps churning them out, human civilisation as a whole keeps ignoring them. It is enough to make a chap think seriously about building an ark and waiting for God to do the decent thing. --Andrew Mueller

Despite loving the Go-betweens, until recently I'd never paid much attention to their solo work, and lo and behold, what a terrible mistake, since Warm Nights turns out to be a delicious slithering groove of a creature, a sinuous collection of heartfelt, glistening songs with Forster at the top of his form and a spare, delicate backing band where producer Edwyn Collins manages to slip just the right instrument in at just the right moment to make the impact perfect - the keyboard ripple on Snake Skin Lady, the Dylanesque organ on Rock and Roll Friend (a rich, warm heartbreaking version of this Forster/McLennan composition), the brass that slides in here and there. Hell, the disc is worth five stars just for the way Forster sings "People high on grass" on Snake Skin Lady, but the vocals throughout are full of his drawled and passionate irony. Soul-nourishing music. Do not live without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars But it's Still Robert Forster 13 Oct. 2001
By David Hirsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are a Robert Forster or Go-Betweens fan, I'm sure you already have this cd. After all, how could you not? And you can stop reading now. This work over produced as it is is not Robert's best work - there are for instance other better versions of Rock and Roll Friend. However, if you 've never heard of the Go-Betweens or Robert Forster, you may start here, enjoy it, and you will enjoy it, and then buy Liberty Bell and the Black Diamond Express by the Go-Betweens and you will be hooked. The Go-Betweens may not be an easy habit to break, but then so what? I originally rated this at 3 stars, but after listening to this again and again, I thought that although, compared to Robert Forster's other solo work and other work with the Go-Betweens, this is not his best, it is still better than most other cds out there and deserves at least 5 stars.
